Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says a legislative special session that begins Monday will not only continue the debate over civil unions but also consider six other issues, including penalties for driving under the influence of marijuana and a water projects proposal.
DENVER (AP) - A bill to allow civil unions in Colorado died when House Republicans refused to bring up for a vote earlier this week before the Legislature adjourned Wednesday. When lawmakers stalled on civil unions legislation, they also killed other bills that required a vote before a Tuesday deadline.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said Thursday the agenda for the special session is being limited to items that died on the Colorado House calendar Tuesday.
